The excitement in the air was palpable as they walked from the University of Toronto campus to Meridian Hall, the venue for Canada's Largest Indigenous performance.
For many of the participants, this was their first time in Toronto, so the opportunity to explore the city was a real treat. They marvelled at the towering skyscrapers, the bustling streets, and the vibrant energy of the city. The group was led by our Program Managers who pointed out interesting landmarks and shared fun facts about Toronto along the way.
The participants gathered together to practice their dance routines for the upcoming performance at Meridian Hall. The enthusiasm and energy of the group were contagious, as they rehearsed their moves with determination and dedication.
There was a sense of pride and accomplishment in the air as the participants saw the stage at Meridian Hall, the site of their big performance. They have been working hard for weeks leading up to this moment, and it was clear that they were all eager to showcase their talent and hard work to a larger audience.
As the day came to a close, the participants settled into their rooms, exhausted but excited for the days ahead.
